Las Vegas tradeshow features North American debut of industrial textile printer and comprehensive soft signage printer and workflow offering
LAS VEGAS - Printing professionals can drive profitable growth with the extensive portfolio of technologies Electronics For Imaging (Nasdaq:EFII) is presenting at the 2016 SGIA Expo, including several new offerings shown for the first time in North America. The company's exhibit at the September 14-16trade show reflects how EFI helps customers harness new capabilities and opportunities, and drive efficiency with the industry's broadest portfolio of LED, UV and aqueous digital textile inkjet printers; digital front ends (DFEs); and production workflow software for digital print signage, display graphics and industrial textile production.
EFI is the only exhibitor at the show that offers a complete, integrated solution with workflow, DFE processing and high-end production inkjet printer technologies. The company's newest products reflect the integrated advantage EFI customers gain, and at SGIA Expo that includes:
Attendees will also experience the end-to-end integrated MIS workflow advantages for superwide-format graphics production that are possible with the newest version of EFI's Midmarket Print Suite, which includes EFI Pace™ software as its core MIS technology, and includes specific tools for streamlined inkjet graphics business and production workflow automation and management.
One EFI customer benefitting from the broad range of technologies EFI offers, Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Gilson Graphics, recently installed the Suite's superwide-format production workflow and a 3.2-meter VUTEk LED hybrid printer using the newest Fiery proServer Premium DFE.
"The relationship between Fiery and Pace is quite important to us," said Gilson Graphics Vice President of Operations Dave Oswald. "Fiery captures key data such as ink and material consumption and employee time. That information is transferred to Pace automatically, significantly reducing the amount of employee ‘touches' required. It also increases the accuracy of that data collection and improves inventory management."
Driving customer success in the analog-to-digital transformation
In addition, in booth 2441, authorized distributor Nazdar SourceOne is featuring the 2-meter EFI VUTEk H2000 Prohybrid UV printer, which features 7-picoliter UltraDrop Technology.
Digital textile printing: A growth opportunity
Décor and apparel applications produced on the new EFI Reggiani ReNOIR ONE-600 printer at the show include an "All-In Green" printing process that provides superior definition, color intensity, and dry and wet rub-fastness. This new 1.8-meter printer also offers improved operational efficiency and quality with new ink feeding and recovery systems, and EFI Reggiani's high-end 2,400 dpi imaging resolution for efficient, premium results.
The new EFI-certified eCommerce for Soft Signage workflow being shown at the SGIA Expo enables customers to quickly get up and running in order to profitably capture new opportunities. It includes three components — the new version 6.3 of EFI's Fiery proServer SE DFE, the multi-award-winning Digital StoreFront® web-to-print and eCommerce software, and the EFI VUTEk FabriVU 340, a 3.4-meter dispersed dye-sublimation ink printer. The FabriVU product line, which is also available in a 1.8-meter size, uses environmentally friendly, water-based inks and produces stunning soft signage and banner applications.
The Digital StoreFront software included in the new eCommerce for Soft Signage bundle helps customers move orders through the process quickly with little intervention and fewer errors. It also provides an easy-to-use web interface ideal for both professional and novice print buyers. In particular, the software's design tools allow for high-quality customization on a broad range of popular soft signage display flags, banners and other products.
New Fiery wide-format DFEs
"This year's SGIA Expo comes at a critical juncture for the industry, when sign and display graphics professionals are redefining the markets and applications that create profitable growth for printing companies now and into the future," said Scott Schinlever, senior vice president and general manager, EFI Inkjet. "Our customers continue to discover new ways to drive higher-margin, higher-productivity work. The portfolio of products EFI is offering at SGIA will spur ideas for even more new opportunities using a truly advanced and complete offering of high-end production inkjet graphics printers, DFE technology and workflow software that is unmatched in the industry."
